QUESTIONS: What is Chromakey?
Chromakey is a new journal dedicated to science-fiction, fantasy, telefantasy, and cult television. Each issue will delve into aspects of specific television series through original interviews, in-depth and informative articles, reviews, analysis, and much more.
The publishers intention is to do a modern day version of Timescreen, The Frame and Action TV, while aiming for something that is a little more professionally produced and run – something along the lines of a literary journal.
Chromakey will publish a variety of written material including: articles, reviews, opinion pieces, interviews, analysis, features, etc. that is informative, in-depth, detail orientated and retrospective. While material will be of a more serious-tone, written work would should still be entertaining – material that is just not only of interest to the archive television enthusiast, but also to a general fan of television. Contributors should not be afraid to ‘speak their mind’ or offer an unpopular opinion on a subject. However, any material of a critical nature should be supported by sound reasons and strong points supporting the criticism.
ARE YOU A PROFESSIONAL OR AMATEUR MAGAZINE?
Chromakey is neither a fanzine nor a professional large-scale magazine (like a TV Zone, People, Us, Starburst, Vogue, GQ, Infinity, Doctor Who Magazine, etc.), but rather a hybrid of the two — something in-between (i.e. amateur and professional). The publisher’s intention is to do a modern-day version of Timescreen, The Frame, and Action TV, while aiming for something that is a little more professionally produced and run — something along the lines of a literary journal.
